Crusaders midfielder Aidan Watson has won the Carling Premiership's player of the month award for April.

It is a timely boost for the former Ballymena player before Saturday's Irish Cup final against Linfield.

"It is my first award and I am delighted with it. It has been a great season for me and the team, and we had a few good wins in April," said Watson.

"This is my first season with Crusaders and to be honest I wish I had joined the club earlier."

Linfield's Michael Gault was runner-up and Ryan Henderson of Donegal Celtic third in the monthly poll organised by the NI Football Writers' Association.

David McAlinden of Carrick Rangers won the Championship award for April.
